IALD Internship Program
Information For Employers

The goal of the IALD Internship Program is to facilitate the development of the next generation of lighting designers through an internship program that continues your educational development through an entry-level professional position.

This program brings together IALD Student members with some of the top independent lighting design firms globally. The mutual growth that will occur between students and employers will enhance lighting education, help to increase the opportunities for those students in the field of design, and promote the diverse opportunities associated with lighting design as a focused profession.

The Internship Program utilizes the IALD Career Center. The posting of internship opportunities is free of charge. To receive a promo code to enter upon checkout, please send an email request to membership@iald.org.

We hope that students and employers alike find professional relationships that are successful and rewarding. If you have any questions about the Internship Program, please contact membership@iald.org or +1 312 527 3677.


IALD’s Find a Lighting Designer feature includes four search options:

  • Country and Project Type can be searched using the drop-down menus.
  • To search by City, simply type in the city you are interested in. The results will first list lighting designers located in that city. The search will then list any designer that has referenced that city in their profile or project list.
  • To search by keyword, type in any word or phrase of interest (example: designer’s name, company name, project name, zip code). The search will yield any profiles that include the keyword you’ve used, or will yield no results if your keyword is not found exactly as entered.

You can use one field or a combination of fields to locate the desired lighting designer. If you are having trouble with the search, or need further assistance, please contact IALD at iald@iald.org or by calling +1 312 527 3677.
